I'm planning on making gingerbread men this year and can't find one recipe on this site. I made some last year from one of my cookbooks and hated it.
My GB cookie cutter is 7" so they will be quite large. Looking for a recipe that's not too soft, but not hard or crispy either.

Any help out there? Thanks.

I use this recipe all the time and get compliments with every batch. The recipe is listed on

You can also read the reviews of the recipe there too. It calls for a small amount of black pepper which makes them nice and spicy.

Good luck!

Thank you for sharing this recipe. I just got a set of 101 cookie cutters from my DH and DS(3 of them). I have a new house cutter and gingerbread person cutter. I am gonna make some for a Festival we are having at our church this weekend.

I personally like the Wilton gingerbread recipe - i find it exceptionally easy to make, its a dream to work with, and it does bake up very sturdy. Every year, we put on a Gingerbread House Decorating Party for our 2 boys & all their friends - and the Wilton recipe has seen us through 8 years of this.

Here's the link:

good luck!
